The Forerunners Analysis

Author: poem of Ralph Waldo Emerson Type: poem Views: 9

Long I followed happy guides,—

I could never reach their sides.

Their step is forth, and, ere the day,

Breaks up their leaguer, and away.

Keen my sense, my heart was young,

Right goodwill my sinews strung,

But no speed of mine avails

To hunt upon their shining trails.

On and away, their hasting feet

Make the morning proud and sweet.

Flowers they strew, I catch the scent,

Or tone of silver instrument

Leaves on the wind melodious trace,

Yet I could never see their face.

On eastern hills I see their smokes

Mixed with mist by distant lochs.

I meet many travellers

Who the road had surely kept,—

They saw not my fine revellers,—

These had crossed them while they slept.

Some had heard their fair report

In the country or the court.

Fleetest couriers alive

Never yet could once arrive,

As they went or they returned,

At the house where these sojourned.

Sometimes their strong speed they slacken,

Though they are not overtaken:

In sleep, their jubilant troop is near,

I tuneful voices overhear,

It may be in wood or waste,—

At unawares 'tis come and passed.

Their near camp my spirit knows

By signs gracious as rainbows.

I thenceforward and long after

Listen for their harplike laughter,

And carry in my heart for days

Peace that hallows rudest ways.—
